Of course, you are right. I never really stopped to think about what a tiny difference 2hz is, and that's well within the adjustment range.Many/most of the better flutes sold today are tuned to A442. This includes Muramatsu, Sankyo, Yamaha, DiZhao, and others. I play a Muramatsu tuned to A442 and I play all the time with groups that tune to A440. It's not a problem to adjust that small amount. The 2hz difference does not matter much because playing in tune with others is ultimately up to the player to listen and adjust accordingly.
That said, some manufacturers still produce or will produce a flute tuned to A440. In the used market, you might find a 20-30 year old used Muramatsu, Haynes, or Powell that is tuned to A440. Your best bet is to contact a reputable flute specialty store and tell them your requirements. They should be able to help you find a flute that will fit your needs.
